To put the documentary Food Fight into proper perspective, the Cleveland Museum of Art (11150 East Blvd., 216.421.7350. clemusart.org) has enlisted local food writer Michael Ruhlman (pictured) to introduce the movie. The Clevelander has written several books about food and helped Lola chef Michael Symon pen a cookbook. He's also a friend of travel writer and TV host Anthony Bourdain and guested on Bourdain's No Reservations when the show stopped in Cleveland.
"I plan to talk about the food issues we're facing today," says Ruhlman, who admitted he'd been traveling and wasn't sure exactly what he's say about the film. "Food Fight is a good movie. It's the kind of thing that if you are really deep into the food scene now, it won't offer any new information. I mean, we know a lot of this stuff already. But if you're sort of curious or just getting into it, it's a great primer for what's going on in the food world. That's why I like it and support it. It's a good documentary, and I'm glad they're showing it here."
